The government of Brazil recently announced that in an effort to address the waste problem in the country, it will be making concessions in a partnership with the National Bank for Economic and Social Development. Trata Brazil, who has been directly involved with the new initiative, is a company that focuses on actions dealing with basic sanitation. The President of Trata Brasil, Edison Carlos, recently went on record to discuss the issue with growing waste affecting the country in an interview. In the interview, Mr. Edison detailed some of the most important factors concerning the initiative. Trata Brasil’s President believes that with the implementation of the new initiative, services will be improved drastically in terms of management, structural, and resource areas. Felipe Montoro Jens recently discussed the decrease in waste levels during the interview. Mr. Jens is an expert in infrastructure projects.
According to Edison Carlos, in Brazil, 90 percent of the sanitation duties are handled by the public, and of that 90 percent, 70 percent of the users are serviced by state-run organizations. He believes that the public will not be excluded after the new initiative takes effect and that with its implementation, both sides should be able to operate in a complementary capacity.
When the initiative comes into effect, the National Bank for Economic and Social Development will create customized plans of action in order to best tackle the problems according to the severity of the affected areas. According to Felipe Montoro Jens, the significant loss of financial resources for the government is a direct result of the loss of water that has occurred due to the fact that the proper services cannot be performed under the current circumstances.
Felipe Montoro Jens is the Chief Executive Officer of Energizer Captacao S.A. he received his undergraduate degree from the Getulio Vargas Foundation, and later attended the Thunderbird School of Global Management, where he achieved his graduate degree.
